Mozambique and Namibia open
talks on fisheries co-operation

The fisheries sector is among Mozambique’s hard currency
earners, after timber, sugar, cotton and cashew nuts

MAPUTO (Xinhua) -- The governments of Mozambique and Namibia started talks on Monday to discuss ways of expanding their cooperation in the fisheries sector.

The two-day discussions are led by Victor Borges, the Mozambican minister of fisheries, and his Namibian counterpart Bernard Esau.

A communique from the Mozambican Ministry of fisheries said the two governments would like to see their fishermen catching fish in each other waters. The talks are also to focus efforts to monitor illegal fishing in the region.

Mozambique wants to be one of the main fish suppliers in the region and in Europe. Borges says Mozambique is to increase the catch from 190,000 tons to 200,000 tons this year.

The fisheries sector is among Mozambique’s hard currency earners, after timber, sugar, cotton and cashew nuts.
